    A bicycle tubeless tire that costs more than my automobile tubeless tire, while wearing out 10x as fast. Problem of the first world.

    For $110 I can have my pick of the best tubulars available, and I can fill them with sealant if I want to. When will this silliness stop?

    Hey Gregg, thanks for the review. My friend Bryan has been training and racing on the Sector 28’s and loves them so far. If you have time, check out his full review on my Average Cyclist blog:

    I know people (including some here) are a bit cross on the price, but my argument for tubeless has and continues to be: fewer flats = less fuss + more fun riding. Thanks again for the review and keep them coming.

    I’ve been riding the Tubeless Fusions for around 3 years now. I’d say life of tire is about like others or maybe slightly less. But I’ve never flatted on them. Well, the one flat was when a dog gave chase and got its paw into the wheel and broke the valve stem off but I don’t consider that a typical flat. Besides that, never a puncture or a pinch.
